The pumpkin crusted chicken is top notch. Bar service is outstanding. Nice selection of local drinks (whiskey, vodka, etc)

“Good but Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Nice place on the River Walk but did not have full bar. Service was good and food was pretty good. With so many places to eat on the River Walk we did not go back.

“Great chips and salsa.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Enjoyed our lunch last week at the Iron Cactus. The tortilla chips were very good and were served warm with 2 delicious salsas. My husband and I both ordered a margarita which we enjoyed. We both had the fish tacos which were served with a Mexican rice and a corn black bean mixture and very tasty.
It was nice to eat outside on a beautiful day but there were many bee's that were flying by. We were served by a friendly and attentive server.

“It's never a good sign....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

..when you go in for a margarita and see the machines. I was reassured that they were hand-shaken, no sweet-n-sour, no mix. And the one I ordered wasn't any of those things, but it was weak. When I asked the bar-keep, she said "it has an once and a half." So an 8 ounce glass has 1 1/2 ounces of tequila and she wonders why I'm saying it's weak? The shrimp tacos were good, the service was good, the atmosphere was bubble-gum.
